Professor Bill Banks
The Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism (INSCT) offers a law certificate program of advanced study (CAS) in Security Studies and Postconflict Reconstruction (PCR) that prepare the next generation of practitioners and policymakers to enter the fields of national security, counterterrorism, homeland security, cybersecurity, and PCR.

Jointly sponsored by the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, INSCT's collaborative research projects and initiatives have shaped law and policy dialogues for more than 10 years, and the Institute continues to evolve its mission and expand its programs to meet shifting geopolitical and legal patterns and the needs of law and graduate students building national security and counterterrorism careers.
